Delta Air Lines is launching the Delta Propel Pilot Career Path Program to identify, select and develop the next generation of pilots. The Propel program is the first in the U.S. to offer students their choice of three unique career routes and an accelerated timeline to progress to Delta, in 42 months or less, after:
- Flying for one of the Delta Connection Carriers
- A job-share flying for Delta Private Jets and instructing for one of Delta’s partner collegiate aviation institutions, or
- Flying military aircraft for the Air National Guard or Reserves.
A limited number of candidates will be chosen each year and will be provided with a Qualified Job Offer (QJO) detailing a defined path and timeline to become a Delta pilot. Students must hold a private pilot license and be at least a junior in the program to apply. Those whohave graduated within the past 6 months are also eligible.
